DoJ Reversal on Torture

I am so behind on my political reading:

Ashcroft is gone. Gonzales is on the way. The acting Attorney General issued a statement reversing the stance on torture:

There is no exception under the statute permitting torture to be used for a “good reason.” Thus, a defendant’s motive (to protect national security, for example) is not relevant to the question whether he has acted with the requisite specific intent under the statute.

Extra: I’m about to lose it with the constant assertions that Muslim terrorist groups are scooping up orphaned tsunami children and bring them to fight for their cause? What – a jihad against plate tectonics?

Correction: Levin is the Assistant to teh Attorney General.

    OK, this is the first I’ve heard of the Jihadist/orphans story. I guess I’m not up on my wingnut monitoring.

    It was on CNN. They were talking about all the displaced children and how community groups (specifically terrorists) could use that to their advantage to bring them over to the dark side.
